A former Florida police captain charged in a fatal movie theater shooting was released from jail Friday.
Pasco County Judge Pat Siracusa set Curtis Reeves Jr.’s bail at $150,000. He said Reeves, 71, must remain home except to go to church, the doctor’s office or the grocery store. He also must surrender firearms.
Reeves is accused of shooting 43-year-old Chad Oulson in the chest at a theater in January after the two argued over Oulson’s apparent refusal to stop texting during movie previews.
Reeves’ lawyers say he fired in self-defense. Earlier in the day, a state appellate court ruled Reeves should be released on bond or told why he was not.
